Rita Ora Interview

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Articles, Interviews, Music | Leave a comment

Let me get this off my chest: Rita Ora’s new single “Anywhere” is brilliant. But then again most of her singles are great. So I had to come with some clever ways to incorporate the best ones in my brief phone interview with Rita for Cosmopolitan Russia. Russian version of our chat is here and original is below. Congrats on the new single! Thank you very much. I wanted to have something out there that people could dance to. I …

Interview with Daniel Teleky Toth

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Cinema, Interviews, MikeyMoscowTV, Travel | Leave a comment

What’s a journalist’s path if you don’t end up in some surprising places. This September I set out to a tiny Hungarian town named Komlo for its first ever movie festival Het Domb Filmfesztival (Seven Hills Festival, if that’s easier) to see some old time LA friends and make some new ones. These were extra packed and friendly three days. I went to spa with the villain from Mad Max/Commando, sneaked into a hot tub at night, ate tons of …

Essay: V for I

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Essays | Leave a comment

There is an app for everything. So how come there’s no rent-a-lover one? Not the tacky (okay, occasionally joyfully pleasant) hook-up-and-ghosting ones, but the ones that allow you a bit more than a foray into the dimly lit world of unnecessary one night stands, uncomfortable 4am looks and walks of shame of a lifetime (where did you say the bus stop where?!). I’m talking proper romance-on-demand app that will bring a (wo)man of your dreams right at your doorsteps at …

TroyBoi intrerview

Music festivals are not all about fun. Okay, you got me, they are, ’cause even the ‘official part’ of the festivals usually looks like this for me: having a good laugh with British producer TroyBoi right before his bombastic gig at Hungarian Sziget festival. You can read to the interview at Myspace and watch it below:

Contently is a great tool for all freelancers who like to keep their portfolio nice and tight: I’ve been using the service to put all of my English articles in one place. That’s also the best way to stay up to date on my writing.

Weekend in St. Petersburg: 2016 edition

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Travel | Leave a comment

В Санкт-Петербург я раньше ездил как на работу – навещать друзей. Затем друзья опомнились, вернулись в Москву, и ездить я стал реже. И вот недавно в Питер меня позвали уже в прямом смысле слова на работу – вести свадьбу знакомых в роскошном конюшенном флигеле при Юсуповском дворце (место-конфетка – хозяйке на заметку). В свободное от конкурсов, букетов и горящих подолов невесты (свечи на полу!) время я наматывал круги по приятным местам города и решил поделиться своими беглыми наблюдениями с вами. …

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club interview

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Interviews, Music | Leave a comment

The interview was originally published on MTVIggy.com (which was sadly shut down and removed by MTV completely in November). In the middle of our interview with 2/3 of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club at the backstage of Danish Tinderbox festival an inevitable question comes up: what does ‘rock’ even stand for in 2015? “I think there’s a difference between rock, rock’n’roll and a rockstar”, says vocalist and guitarist Peter Hayes of the San Francisco-born band, dressed in all black and sitting …

I’ve interviewed more than 50 artists in 2015: some big ones, some new ones and tons of great ones. So I guess it’s time to listen to them sing rather than talk – check out this playlist https://itunes.apple.com/ru/playlist/mikeys-2015/idpl.da8710699d854808a69e8bfb9e3e45c5

Anastacia interview

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Articles, Interviews, Music | Leave a comment

Anastacia has always been one of my favorites: ever since I heard her powerhouse attitude-heavy vocals on her hurricane debut single I’m Outta Love back in 2000. I was also geeky enough to spend a lot of time on the Russian Anastacia-themed message board around the time her Anastacia album came out and made some fantastic friends in the process with whom we’ve traveled to Kiev, Saint Petersburg and Helsinki to see Anastacia’s shows over the years. So I was …
